We ate here twice on our recent Cairn’s holidays & on both occasions we were happy with our meals. The slow-cooked steaks were cooked as ordered & there were generous serves of salad & veg. The staff were pleasant & friendly & the service was quick – but we did eat during off-peak periods.

Steak and ribs were good although more fries would have been good. Staff very friendly and attentive. Would go back again.

I finally went to Hog's Breath with friends last night. I have heard good reports for a long time so I was looking forward to the opportunity to try their famous steak myself. What a disappointment.

Have been to a few different locations of the Hog's Breath and haven't had an unpleasant experience at any of them The food is great every time and the portions are far from average.

If you are looking for good consistent quality restaurant it's hard to go past Hogs Breath. Always a great meal at a reasonable price no matter where the restaurant is. Service is always friendly

Having come from interstate, we found Hog's Breath Cafe in Cairns to be as expected in terms of hospitality and food quality. Didn't get to try the Steak this time because we were too hungry to wait.

Following our disappointment at Limmys Malaysian Restaurant we decided to go safe and head to Hogs Breath. The Prime Rib is relayably great,although the vegies are predictably American Fast Food.
